Warning: Contains spoilers from Game of Thrones Season 6
In episode 4 of Game of Thrones Season 6, Daenerys Targaryen(Mother of Dragons, Queen of Meereen, DThe Unburnt, Khaleesi, etc.) is once again shown to use her “superpower” and come out unscathed from a burning Dosh Khaleen.
Emilia Clarke (who plays Daenerys in Game of Thrones) spoke with Entertainment Weekly about THAT moment and confirmed that it was her in that scene and not her body double.
I’d like to remind people the last time I took my clothes off was season 3. That was awhile ago. It’s now season 6. But this is all me, all proud, all strong. I’m just feeling genuinely happy I said ‘Yes.’ There ain’t no body double!”
Emilia Clarke and the showrunners also revealed that Dany’s scenes were shot on a closed in Belfast. Apart from that, all other Dothraki scenes were shot in a dessert in Spain. This comes as a boon for Emilia as in Season 1 she was asked to do nude scenes on a cliff.
“Taking off my clothes is not the easiest thing, but with the magic of the effects, I don’t have to do a season 1 and go on a cliff and do it,” she notes. “I’m in control of it.”
After a dramatic and unexpected end to the episode, Khaleesi was all over the internet!
Don’t mind me, just adding yet another title to Daenerys Targaryen’s ever growing resume.#GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/XBEVEcSCuS

However, a lot of fans have been complaining about the unexpected twist given to Khaleesi’s plot and they are not happy with it.
Whatever be it, it was an awesome ending to the episode!
